Going Ductless: Turn Backyard Buildings into Livable Spaces

Ductless Unit with Remote

Want to get away from it all without leaving your Ohio backyard?

A detached building on your Medina property could become your vacation home a few steps away from home. Renovated garages, jazzed-up sheds, and tiny houses are increasingly popular as added living spaces in backyards nationwide. 

An accessory building can provide a comfortable getaway from the hubbub of your primary home, living quarters for aging parents, or a work area for your hobby. Whatever you plan for your backyard accessory building, include heating and cooling for year-round use.  

A ductless heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) unit is your path to a four-season accessory building. Let our qualified pros at Gene’s Heating, Air Conditioning, Plumbing & Electrical show you how easy it is to add ductless heating and cooling to your backyard sanctuary.

Why Choose Ductless?

A ductless mini split is the perfect HVAC system for home add-ons, detached buildings, and renovated areas, such as attached garages, where you cannot or choose not to extend ductwork from your ducted furnace, heat pump, or air conditioner.  

If you plan to remodel your detached garage into a man cave or turn a shed into a lounge, ductless is the only way to heat and cool without using space heaters and portable AC units. You cannot extend your HVAC ductwork to your backyard structure.

What is Ductless?

A ductless mini split includes an outdoor heat pump connected via wiring and a refrigerant line to one or more indoor air handling units. The indoor unit can hang on a wall or ceiling or sit on the floor in a console. A one-room structure likely needs just one indoor unit. A home addition with several rooms might include an air handler in each room. 

The indoor units work independently, enabling homeowners to customize the temperature in every room. 

At Gene’s, we favor Carrier products, but our professionals have the expertise to repair and service other brands. As a Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer, we would love to show you how Carrier products can improve your comfort without breaking your budget. 

Advantages of Ductless Heating and Cooling

  • Ductless mini splits are less disruptive to existing walls and ceilings than bulky air ducts and conventional equipment, such as furnaces. They require a three-inch hole in one wall to connect the outdoor and indoor units. 
  • They provide both heating and cooling.
  • Mini splits are highly energy efficient because they transfer heat rather than create it as a furnace does. 
  • They do not lose conditioned air through leaky ductwork. According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), duct losses can account for more than 30 percent of energy consumption for space conditioning.
  • Ductless mini splits improve indoor air quality (IAQ) because there are no ducts to collect and possibly distribute dust and debris. 
  • Maintenance is minimal.
